Frutarom Unveils Bioavailable Vitamin K2 For Supplements, Functional Foods

November 16, 2010: 08:34 AM EST

Israeli food ingredient and flavor producer Frutarom has introduced a bioavailable and novel food-approved variety of vitamin K2 (MK-7) for use in foods and food supplements. According to the company, uniK2 is derived from the traditional Japanese food known as Natto, a rich source of vitamin K2. The company says scientific studies support the claim that uniK2 enhances both bone and heart health. Made by fermenting soy beans, Natto is produced using Bacillus natto, a bacteria naturally occurring in the food. The extract provides vitamin K2 as menaquinone-7 (MK-7), a highly bioavailable and bioactive form of vitamin K. The extract is available in powder form or as an oil, the company says, and can be used in dietary supplements, as well as functional foods.
